The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) has a new president and CEO. After serving on the association’s board of directors for 3 years, and as the chair of the fundraising committee, Regina Hartfield assumed the position on January 14, 2022.
In an interview with HCPLive®, Hartfield shared her priorities for 2022 as the new leader of the association. One of the first priorities is to increase the amount of member organizations in partnership with SCDAA across the US. Currently, SCDAA partners with 53 organizations that span 29 states, collectively serving over 500,000 individuals with sickle cell disease (SCD).
Another pritority that Hartfield was excited to share was a clinical trial finder that SCDAA first launched in October 2021. The goal is to continue to grow number of people who have access to it and in turn, increase the amount of people participating in clinical trials.
